The flyers by steve-burg The flyers by steve-burg
This is another image from the book "Concept Design" published by Scott Robertson.

Similar to the image "The Dust Storm", it is representative of what I was producing some years ago, while I was immersed in the effort of learning to use 3D.

The image is a view from inside one of the launch bays of a large airborne carrier. Several other such vessels can be seen below, in the clouds. The long-finned vertical craft is a fighter that is soon to be drop-launched from the bay to take part in some aerial battle.

The figures were made in Poser - and yes, they're not very good at all :lol: ! I am not a character modeler by any stretch of the imagination. But I still kind of like the fighter ship design, although maybe I'm just sentimental ;)

Very very cool.  Uhhh....what is it?  :)  Seriously, I'm a big sci-fi art fan, and futuristic carriers and launch bays are way cool.

I might have been thinking of Myazaki's films (Laputa, Naussica) - I definitely like Last Exile. I like giant airships! :D

That makes me happy. I really want to push my art to the next level. I feel like I´m painting in the dark, sort of, and I really want to do something about that. That´s just an idea. I will keep going and see what comes out of it. I hope to discover something within me that would guide me through my journey.Like a muse. And of course, other artists, like you :)

Yes, I will take your advice to account.

Once again, thank you for your kind words. It helps alot :)

Thank you - I had a look at your gallery. Your work is much more organic, while mine is very technical a lot of the time. I quite enjoyed my visit, and picked a :+fav:

Yeah, I seem to have an organic style. It´s more of a soft reflection
of my own fantasy, but I want to go much deeper and dig out the images in my mind. There is alot, and I have to say, that some of them are far more advanced than I could possibly imagine. Those are the ones I want to make. Its a blessing to be able to share with another artist like you. You get feedback and response, and for me, that is heaven. NOw IM going to pick some favorites in your gallery.
Hope to hear from you soon.

It has happened again. I found a design that has left me with his mouth open. what would you recommend for him to take a look and it turns out .... is you.


This type of work (no offense meant not SciFi) are so incredible that leaves me without words ....

You never stop to Surprise My Friend:

So are who you are ....

A very heart-felt "Thank you" :)

I try many different things, but the sci-fi design is at my core :D

I hope to continue with "surprise"! Even though sometimes the attempt can fail, it is preferable to becoming too comfortable and only producing the same thing over and over ;)

I find it very interesting, range of thematic, and even technique.
Although perhaps not so smart to do so.
I think that vary from time to time you can learn new things each time.
Anyway it is clear that something inside that we mark our way.
SciFi I've never been able to make professionally, because the job offered to me, almost always, is oriented more to white fantasy or children.
But I never stopped creating SciFi, because as you say, is something you have inside.
Keep trying ....
Well if I have made my several short films SciFi ! :)

As an artist or craftsman, the desire is to learn and expand, always trying new things. But in the commercial market, there is a strong tendency to place everyone and everything inside a closed box.

So we must continue to follow what we have inside - and hope for the best :)

The longest part of the process is the design phase. Which might mean only that - once I finish the design - I short-change every other step you're supposed to do in a rush to start lighting and setting up my view :lol:

Something like this probably takes a few days. Coming up with the idea is half the battle :D
